in the remote sahara desert in eastern algeria, near the libyan border. militants reportedly approached the facility in three unmarked vehicles. their attack left at least two dead, including a british national. they took at least 20, and perhaps more than 40 people hostage. at least three americans, 13 norwegians and others from britain, ireland, canada, japan and france. reportedly leading the attack, former al qaeda commander, mokhtar belmokhtar, who always before promised retaliation for france's military action in neighboring mali. for days, french fighter jets have pounded islamic militants in mali with american drones providing intelligence. france has also sent hundreds of troops with hundreds more on the way. they will be joined by troops from neighboring african countries. the militants have warned that france's intervention here will come at a very high price. they say that by landing here, they have opened the gates of hell, a warning perhaps not only to france, but to all western interests here in africa. the militants already control northern mali, an area the size of fran

operation to end the hostage situation in eastern algeria has ended. once again, this is according to algerian state media which is also reporting that two brits and two filipinos were killed at the amenas gas plant in eastern algeria. we cannot confirm this, only according to reports being watched by the associated press who happens to be on the ground there and other individuals who are watching the news there. algerian tv saying that an operation we believe began about ten hours ago by the algerian military to free all we know are dozens of hostages, which include as many as seven americans, began with ten hours ago, they say that that has ended, and so far four casualties. earlier in the day the islamic militants in control of the site had said there were dozens who had been killed, so we'll have to wait and see exactly what's happened but right now algerian state media has said it has come to an end, a natural gas plant that's a co-joint effort between british petroleum, stat oil of norway a norway. back to you guys. >> prime minister david cameron from the uk also said expect

section of eastern algeria. more than 80 people are dead after that terror attack in the sahara including at least one american we've heard about so far. conor powell live in our middle east bureau with more what is happening there today. connor. hello. >> reporter: a group reportedly behind this attack that left at least 48 of the hostages killed and at least one american. there isn't much known about the group. the group's name actually means the brig dwad -- brigade of the masked ones. it is believed to be tied with other terror groups in north after and including mali and libya and also has ties to al qaeda. they are promising more attacks like this one if western governments don't stop military operations in neighboring mali. initially they said all 32 militants were killed in the initial raid. they're saying five, six or so of them are in custody. this is type of confusing information we've been getting out of algeria since the start of it and doesn't help paint a full picture what happened there. late last night algerian officials say they will not allow foreigners to secure its oi

. this is a file picture of the field. it's in the eastern part of algeria. it's partly owned by the energy company bp. now algeria's interior minister said that two people were killed in the attack. it's believed to be retaliation for algeria's support for the french offensive in mali. a u.s. state department official said that as many as ten americans were work at the oil field. the state department hasn't said how many of them right now may be hostages. we are told a special operations team is standing by, quote, on a very short string. obviously this is a very fluid situation. i'm joined no by cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty and former cia officer bob baer. jill, you've been working your sources today. what is the latest? >> we believe obviously this happened at a gas field. if you look at the map, it's in eastern algeria. that's 37 miles from the libyan border. and that's important because they believe that the people who carried this out came in from the east, in from libya. they went to this gas field. it's owned by bp, the algerians and the norwegians. and they carried out

of the facility in eastern algeria that simon referenced. neither b.p. or stat oil, nor the u.k. government nor the u.s. government able to provide any clarity about the state of that on peril rags. there are conflicting reports about casualties. b.p. along with other energy companies in the country are moving nonessential employees from algeria. once again, in the last hour the white house strongly condemning the attack on the plant and the white house spokesperson saying president obama is being briefed regularly on the situation. they would not provide any clarity about whether or not there are u.s. drones over algeria at this point. to give you the background, a group connected to al qaeda has claimed responsibility for this attack. they said it is in retaliation for fran's moving into mali. they tried to put a stop to islamic militants trying to take over that country. >> michelle, the earlier reports i saw in the associated press, news source, there were multiple fatalities, maybe as many as 35 among the whose stages. that is now an unreliable report, right? >> absolutely. at this point n
necessary and proper steps that are required to deal with the situation. it happened overnight in eastern algeria, on the border of libya. this is a joint venture. algeria is a huge producer of natural gas supplies some 30% of natural gas to europe and these militants have said the reason they have conduct this attack is because of retaliation for french military intervention into neighboring mali. that's why they've undertaken this situation. so it's getting more and more intense in north africa and certainly we have seen the war on terror move from what was typically before what we call the middle east and east and now northern africa. >> as you well know the united states has quietly been helping the french who were trying to quell the al qaeda linked rebellion in mali. is that a leading indicator, is that what panetta is saying there will be american footprints in this whole situation? >> reporter: that's unclear at this point. he's traveling in italy. those were brief comments to reporters. we'll find out in ensuing days what he means. >> thanks very much, michelle caruso-cabrera as
terrorist attack on a gas field in eastern algeria near the libyan border. some of the more than 40 hostages seized have been released but a number of them are still being held, including americans. the state department confirms those americans are affiliated with the oil giant bp. let's bring in elise labott. the latest information you're getting is what? >> well, at first these assailants, these affiliated-al qaeda militants tried to storm a bus, these bp employees headed for an air field in nearby eastern algeria, that was not successful. then they stormed the compound of this living -- the living quarters of this air field and they took about 40 hostages. we understand that about seven americans -- we're not sure. it could be a little bit more, a little less -- are being held as well as britain, japan, norway, and ir labd. >> do we know who these americans are, what they were doing there precisely? >> they were all working in some capacity for bp. it's a very remote area and that's all that is going on, is this gas field in the area. we know the state department has been in touch. we're
because of the degenerating security situation there. the hostages that have been taken in eastern algeria are a step that was threatened by the al qaeda, the islamist extremists who were making the security situation in mali so intenable that the french felt compelled to take military action. i support the administration's decision to support the french military action. we're providing intelligence and logistics support, and i look forward to advocating in congress for the financial resources needed to ensure that the appropriate steps are taken, both by the french and regional militaries. the u.n. security council has authorized this action, the malian president had requested help, and the concerning situation of the american hostages and other western hostages is just one bracing reminder, andrea, of how dangerous and how difficult the situation in mali is and how much of a risk they pose to security in the region. >> i know we only have a few seconds left, but i want to quickly ask you, you're traveling with john mccain and others in the delegation, are you advocating on behalf of chuc
of the other. the attack occurred overnight at a natural gas facility in eastern algeria which is in northern africa. the facility operated as a joint venture between bp of the uk and stat oil of norway and the nigerian state oil company. u.s. defense secretary leon panetta while speaking to reporters in italy called this a terrorist attack so the u.s. will take, quote, all necessary and proper steps. we are showing you the actual facility in algeria. the google map, google earth. a group affiliated for al qaeda has claimed responsibility for the attacks, in retaliation for france's military intervention into the country of mali which borders algieria. france began that intervention last week to try to combat islamic militants that work in that country. the hostages include not only americans but french, british, norwegian, japanese and an irish citizen as well. and according to information about algeria on bp's website, algeria supplies 30% of europe's natural gas. bill, back to you. >> thank you very much, michelle. more as that story continues to unfold. meantime, headed towards the close.
obviously this happened at a gas field. if you look at the map, it's in eastern algeria. that's 37 miles from the libyan border. and that's important because they believe that the people who carried this out came in from the east, in from libya. they went to this gas field. it's owned by bp. the algerians and the norwegians. and they carried out this attack. apparently what happened is they had a previous attack. it didn't work. and then moved to another part of this complex. you can see it's quite large. and that's where they took these hostages. they say that they have 41 people that may or may not be true. initially, the reports were there were seven americans. there are probably about three. but there are also japanese, british, norwegian and irish at least, anderson. >> and bob, the man claiming responsibility for this, his name is mokhtar belmokhtar. what do you know about him? >> he has broken away from al qaeda. he broke away in december, but has long-standing relations. he is a salahify. he is particularly well armed. over the last year he has been buying libyan arms, surface-to
gas field where the attack happened in eastern algeria. u-s officials today confirmed americans were among the hostages, but would not say how many were taken. indications are the attakers are affiliated with al qaeda and based in mali. militants from mali may be making good on their threats of revenge for the french intervention. agence france-presse spoke to one of the attackers by phone. he identified himself to agence france-presse as an al qaeda loyalist from mali. defense secretary leon panetta has called it a - quote- 'terrorist act.' the militants reportedly launched the attack in anger over algiers' support of the french offensive in mali. meantime, the u-s embassy has issued an emergency message to u-s citizens in >> pam: a developing story we're following tonight. san jose police are hunting for a suspect in connection with a brazen attempted kidnapping. just minutes ago.police just released a sketch of the suspect. that sketch is on your screen. kron four's rob fladeboe spoke with the mother. she struggled with the man who was trying to pull her 2- year old from her arms,
. it is in eastern algeria, 37 miles from the libyan border. that's important because they believe the people that carried this out came in from the east, in from libya. they went to this gas field, owned by bp. the algerians and the norwegians. they had a previous attack and it didn't work. they moved to another part of the complex. it is quite large. that's where they took the hostage. >> the man claiming responsibility is mokhtar belmokhtar. >> he has broken away from al qaeda. he broke away in december. he is an el salafism. he is very hostile to the west, particularly well-armed. over the last year, he has been buying libyan arms, surface air missiles, other heavy weaponry. he is a particularly dangerous radical guy. >> is he libyan or algerian? >> he is algerian. this he go back to 1992. the libyans -- the libyan revolution has opened arms they never had access to before. this has been brewing for some time. >> jill, i know defense secretary panetta has made a statement about it today. is it possible the u.s. might take military action? >> they might if they want to try to i have sa the
, their priority making sure that people believed that oil and natural gas drilling was still safe in eastern algeria. so, i think we're going to have to play this out. it's not a satisfactory answer, but the real question is, what are we going to do about the broader threat of al-qaeda and islamic. >> and you said what was apparently one of the provocations was the french and the algerians, let the french use their air space to go to mali and attack rebels there. i'm curious, is this a change in the french. are the french getting more involved in the war. >> these are french colonies and this is what they do in former french kohl list. >> greta: this is as aggressive i've seen the french do. >> the government in mali was about to fall to the terrorists, from their perspective i think they're probably a little late to the game, but i think that this operation against this natural gas drilling facility, obviously, was planned well in advance of the french operation in mali. >> greta: you think that it's not-- >> this is a huge hostage taking operation hundreds of algerians, along with several
in eastern algeria. they took hundreds captive. algerian special forces are trying to find a peaceful way to solve this thing. one american, 11 other hostages were killed in an algerian military rescue operation thursday. 650 others were free or escaped. six of them were american. and some survivors say they escaped with plastic explosives the kidnappers had strapped on their necks. >>> for lots of people, he was the face of new orleans during the 2005 hurricane katrina catastrophe. but now, former new orleans mayor ray nagin has been indicted on 21 federal counts of corruption. he's accused soft money laundering and bribery and tax and wire fraud. prosecutors say nagin's family members received a vacation in hawaii, first class airfare to jamaica, private jet, a limo cost more than $23,000 as part of these alleged bribes. >>> let's head back to washington now. randi kaye is live this morning at the national mall, ahead of president obama's inauguration. randi, i know that there have to be some heaters out there, some blankets, something! >> oh, yeah. we have quite the setup out here. it'
dead. killed in the fighting at the gas plant in remote eastern algeria. we're going to get to the state department now and our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty. jill, what more do we know about how the hostage crisis ended today? >> well, john, you can definitely say that it was very violent. in fact, we're still trying to pin down the numbers. you know, as the algerian news agency said, 23 hostages were killed. 32 terrorists were killed. but that area was mined. and, in fact, the british foreign secretary just talked about that, that it was booby trapped. so as now they go in to clear it and make it safe, there is a lot that they may not know. and is still not a clear -- the operation is over, but it's not a cleared-out space. they could find things as they go through. let's listen to the defense secretary, leon panetta. he said it very well this afternoon. >> with regards to the numbers of americans, we are still trying to get accurate information about just exactly how many americans were located there and exactly what happened to them. >> and so that is rea
to be in single digits. >> it took place in the eastern part of algeria at an oil compound with oil workers. a number of people are held hostage. this does include british nationals, and it is a dangerous situation. >> the u.s. state department confirms americans are among the hostages. >> we are monitoring the situation. we are in contact with authorities and diplomatic counterparts as well as the security office in london. >> this hostage crisis is focusing right across whitehall. what is not clear is what exactly are the kidnappers motives, because this boils down to two possibilities. is this about money? or is it about politics? the french military's actions to push back rebels linked to al qaeda has led to threats of retaliation. this could be part of the retaliation, or it could have been planned weeks ago. algeria and several other countries are faced with an unexpected hostage standoff they will try to resolve without bloodshed. >> for more on the kidnappings and the fallout, rick nelson served at the national counter- terrorism center. these foreigners who have been arrested in al
was operating together with some local affiliates that facility, the oil/gas facility in eastern algeria and they have chartered a plane carrying bp employees from algeria expected to land in the uk around midnight local time. bp would not confirm whether the employees include those who were at this facility, at this gas field. so apparently they are taking their people out. it's a very dangerous situation i assume. you've studied this for a long time. i was surprised to hear that there were these bp employees there in that volatile situation but you know a lot more about this than i do. >> well, there are large multinational corporations and gas corporations that work in southern algeria in conjunction with the algerian national energy company. so that is not surprising. what was surprising about this attack was the choice of target. aqim has targeted energy workers before most notably in 2010 when another aqim commander kidnapped seven employees of the -- of a subcontractor of the french nuclear firm and this was surprising given the level of security that is gener

-s had here was to send an u-manned drone to eastern algeria to watch what was unfolding. algeria's army says it had no choice but to send in its special forces for a rescue. a very bloody fight apparently ensued. it appears several - at least six hostages have been killed in the process. dozens more are unaccounted for. it's still unclear how many americans are involved. cnn has confirmed that among those still being held -- a man from texas. islamist militants are clainimg responsibility for the ambush, which happened yesterday at a b-p gas plant. that group says at least 35 hostages died - but officcials are highly skeptical of that. they are preparing for a very bad situation. >> pam: a search for an attempted kidnapper in san jose is called off. after the mother admits she made up the whole story. kron 4's rob fladeboe is live tonight at san jose police headquarters. rob - have police said why the mother made up the story? >> reporter: there were a lot of red flags. exactly why, they are not saying. but they are very angry that many police resources were wasted what turned out to be
the hostages from the gas plant in eastern algeria has ended but there is still some ongoing activity at the plant possibly to root out some terrorists who may still be hiding within the plant which is a fairly large and sprawling complex. but what we understand from the algerian press service is that the reason that the algerians decided to conduct this operation yesterday was they felt the terrorists were on the verge of taking the hostages out of the country. so they launched this operate to rescue these hostages, without warning the -- they were able as you mentioned to rescue 650 hostages, 573 of those hostages are algerian and they have been able to rescue 132 foreign nationals, 100 of those nationals have been rest cued. prime minister david cameron has said that these attackers, the people that are behind these attacks were well armed, this was a well coordinated attack. so the rationale that the attackers gave for attacking the hostages in the first place was france's ability to conduct military operations in mali's air space doesn't necessarily ring true. >> do we know the c
